Chartwell Road

Expected start: 8 January 2018

Expected completion:
March 2018

  • Information on traffic management and road closures while the work takes place

Details of work:

  • Construction of a dedicated signalised cycle crossing on Chartwell Road to improve the crossing facilities for cyclists between Spixworth Road and St Clements Hill
  • Modification of the existing pedestrian crossing by reducing the length of the crossing ‘stagger’ on the Chartwell Road central island
  • Widening of the footways at the junction
  • Realignment of the traffic islands where Spixworth Road and St Clements Hill meet Chartwell Road

Reasons for work:

  • To allow cyclists and pedestrians to cross Chartwell Road more quickly and directly by providing a dedicated one-stage, cycle-only crossing
  • To improve the existing crossing for pedestrians by reducing the length of the ‘stagger’
  • To improve the overall look of the area by reducing the amount of pedestrian guardrails and hatched road markings

Background

Proposals for this project were subject to public consultation in March 2017.
